THE ITINERARY: SAI GON MORNING TASTE (B)
The morning: at 7:30 am, our local English speaking guides will greet and meet you at your hotel or any specific place. You will then receive safety instructions on how to ride on the back of a bike properly in order to ensure the safest experience. Then, you will soon whisk away on the back of their bikes with no problem at all to have breakfast totally in Vietnamese style.
After breakfast, Let’s walk around a local wet market (not Ben thanh market) where locals come every day to shop is an eye opening and exciting experience. Our guides can also help you to negotiate to get the best prices and you would learn some basic Vietnamese to try trading, bargaining in Vietnamese style with the vendors. You also will try some kinds of fruits and drink coconut water in this local market.
Then, we will take you in the must-see landmarks while getting you off the crowded tourist trail. Take a peek at the history, the streets and the sights that most foreign tourists never even hear about or see on their way.
Enough for the chaos, we now will try the most famous drink in Vietnam in old hidden apartment: the Vietnamese coffee and learn how to make a glass of coffee without machine. It is so good and that is why it has its place in everyone's bucket list when coming to Vietnam.
Lastly, it's probably late at this time. It's time for us to have lunch together. We will take you to have some Saigon delicacy such as Com tam (broken rice) or Bun Bo, Pho (Beef noodle soup)
